Elcie Lee can't go back to sleep, can't go back to who she was and what she did not know before that night in the old village hotel. Perhaps she called these manifestations through The Thin in a moment of desperation. Or maybe they have been waiting for her to come along. All she knows is that she is in a race to find out who or what they are -- indeed who or what she herself may be. Pursued by sinister beings, both human and otherwise, if Elcie does not uncover the secrets of her own past in time, she will be the next to disappear.

  1. The two men sat in a cell on opposite bunks. Sal chewed on the end of his pencil. The metal clasp clamped together with teeth marks embedded and the eraser long gone. “I can’t figure this out.”
    Paul tapped the edge of the paper as if he was playing the drums. “Just relax. No need to give yourself a stroke.”
    “Man, I wish I had a cigarette.”
    “Not on my watch. I didn’t give up those coffin nails just to get cancer from your second hand smoke.”
    Perspiration formed on Sal’s forehead. He wiped the sweat away with the back of his hand. “Am I supposed to put this here?”
    Paul leaned his head toward the cell door. “Gate keeper’s coming this way.”
    Sal slammed his pencil down. “Damn. I’m not finished. Stall him.”
    Paul stood up and stretched his arms above his head. “Stash it man. We’ll complete it later.”
    The uniformed man stood at the door looking at the two men. “Time.”
    Sal wiped his hands on the sides of his pants. “ Just one more game of Yahtzee.”
